We are self-proclaimed electrical enthusiasts and our staff loves to learn. Our serious approach to continuous learning has grown our expertise in many areas.
Knob + Tube Rewiring
Knob and Tube wiring was a popular form of electrical design between the 1880s and the 1940s. This wiring scheme involved installing copper wires through ceramic tubes and knobs which were attached to the framing of the home. While this installation orientation was efficient, it often led to unorganized and dangerous wiring paths. Consequently, Knob and Tube wiring has been banned by the National Electrical Code and is seen as a serious fire risk in many states.
Our team has a particular fondness for knob and tube rewire projects. They can either remove the knob and Tube system entirely or simply deactivate it in lieu of more safety-conscious wiring methods.
Solar energy is a type of renewable energy that is created when small panes of silicon called cells transform solar radiation into electricity. The transformed energy is sent to an inverter which transforms the direct current (DC) energy generated by the solar cells to alternating current (AC) which is suitable for use in your home.

We have been rated as Top Solar Contractor in the United States for the last 3 years - We think that’s kind of cool.
Battery Storage + EV-Charging
We have teamed up with Tesla Energy and Outback Solar to offer certified installation of battery storage systems and EV-Chargers. Batteries work with either renewable energy or simply as a way to add some extra security in the event of a power outage. Learn more about how Tesla Powerwall 2 can work for you: Tesla Powerwall 2
Batteries are endlessly complex, which is why we like them.
If there is one thing that we excel at, it’s finding code violations. Our electricians love orderly wiring but they also understand that unsafe electrical systems could put you and your family in danger. We want to understand your needs and wants, regardless of what stage of the home ownership process you are in.
We will even include a detailed and annotated photo-summary for your review.
The average electrical demands have risen exponentially in the last century. Through the 1940s, the average electrical service size for an average home was 60 amps. By the 1970s, the average service size had risen to 100 amps. And now, the average home requires a 200 amp service to keep up with the increase in energy demand.
We have a few on our team who love service upgrades. In fact, we really can’t get them to do anything else.
We have a particular love for home and business remodels. We especially love high-end remodels, and many in our company have decided to specialize in lighting theory, design, and installation.
They would be more than happy to provide you with personalized recommendations on your remodel and lighting needs.
There is nothing more interesting to us than a mystery. We’ve seen almost every type of electrical hazard and enigma, and we have solved them all.
If something seems to not be working, let us know. On the other hand, if you smell something burning, definitely let us know.
